and I still get the occasional minor outbreak. Can I up the dosage to one 500mg pill twice daily for three days, as recommended for outbreaks when not taking them daily. I know for recurring outbreaks they advise 500mg twice daily for three days. But I am taking them once daily for preventative precautions. Will it mess things up if I get a Minor outbreak and up my dosage for three days and then go back to my once a day schedule?
You should talk to your doctor about this and see what he wants you to do.
